We are a family of nine, with seven young kids age 15 and younger.

Ryan or Barbara purchased this house in 2004

While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and used the resort for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. We now live in Idaho but return often to The Retreat and Massanutten as one of our favorite vacation destinations. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added three additional Massanutten homes to our inventory and rented to more than 700 families. We hope you will enjoy The Retreat at Massanutten as much as our family and our guests have.

During the summer, we purchase the 'pool pass' that allows our guests to use the private outdoor pool. This is much more private and avoids the hustle and bustle of the crowded indoor pools.

Great place to stay!

We really enjoyed staying at the Retreat for a weekend in October. 12 adults had plenty of room to spread out. Guys loved the game room. Nicely stocked kitchen and very clean overall. Owner was very helpful in suggesting local restaurants/sites as well and very responsive in answering any questions. A little wear and tear around the edges, but overall great place and would stay here again.

Our family stayed at this rental this past weekend and found it in below average condition.
The internet did not work as well and several calls to the owner did not resolve it.
Owner's Response: We strive to provide the best customer service to every renter with our 24/7 manager available on site. I have reached out specifically to these renters to discuss this issue and received no response yet. Our Comcast internet service did have some technical issues. Our manager ensured that the internet was working during their two day stay, although slower. Comcast was at the home the following day and replaced and updated the internet router and added a booster to the connection at the home. This will ensure that all internet access will be as quick as possible going forward. As always, our staff stands ready to address any issues that are raised or may fall short of exceptional accommodations.

Disappointing

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This was a family vacation celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary. We arrived at the house to find it dirty: cigarette butts in the porch, carpeting in bedrooms, especially master, was filthy, floors sticky. A lot of the house, especially the kitchen, was in disrepair...cupboard doors coming off, no tank and an igniter that didn't work in the grill that was in bad shape. There were no screens on lower level bedrooms. The refrigerater was missing shelves and drawers and froze many items, even after we adjusted the temp. We had to replace several light bulbs and couldn't reach some that needed replacement. Lighting in the main room was poor. Carpet in the lower level smelled. The game on that level didn't work....four disappointed boys. On the good side the space and location were great. THe kitchen was fairly well stocked with enough dishes, silver and pots...needs more wine glasses. The towels were generally good, but there were few washcloths and no hand towels. There is a need for a deep cleaning and general maintenance. The agent helped as much as he could with a tank for the grill and also sent a woman in to clean the floors.
Massanutten was wonderful...we all enjoyed the area...but the house was one big disappointment.
Owner's Response: We understand the frustration of this rental. We diligently prescreen guests that will maintain our homes, but the prior renters were an unfortunate exception and left the home in serious disrepair on a back-to-back rental in the busy summer. We did offer the Olsons our six bedroom home as an alternate accommodation in an attempt to alleviate her concerns. And, as she recognizes, our 24/7 onsite manager and his crew were responsive in addressing each and every issue that was raised, even under tough conditions. This is not indicative of the normal high standards that we have for any rental at any of our homes, as the other reviews make abundantly clear.

Great Place for a Family Reunion

We had a great time. We had 3 generations. The house was very clean and spacious. The children enjoyed the water park, the zip line, and the caverns. We went hiking and fishing. I recommend this house especially for a large group.
